I was on 12Steprecovery.com and saw that there was a book available that I had been hearing about for a while. The title is "The Book That Started it All: A working manuscript of the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous.
It is incredible! It has the original typed text of the Big Book before it was ever published with handwritten notes in the margins. Originally Bill W. sent this manuscript out to the groups for feed back. Some of the annotations were really great and changes were made to…Continue

I like this concept of Sober Village. One thing I know about recovery is that there is no way I could do this without meetings or the fellowship. Can you imagine sitting at home alone with the Big Book, working the steps without discussing them with anyone, and being able to stay sober and gain some sobriety?? I can’t. How would I have heard things like, “don’t drink no matter what”; don’t leave before the Miracle happens” or any of the other quips and quotes we have in AA and…Continue

My recovery has evolved to the point where I am better able to trust my higher power to provide everything I need. I am older and wiser now, however, it is the 12 steps that have transformed me. I had a sponsor once who told me that each day God gives me 24 hours worth of everything I need; shelter, food, courage, strength, serenity, love...everything. When I can stay in today, I find that she was exactly right.I have…Continue

I am sorry, but I had to delete my blog, someone in my family saw it on here, and guessed my identity, and I no longer felt safe with it out here. I still encourage everyone to open up and post their true feelings on here, but to also be careful and maybe edit out personally identifying info.

The Language of Letting Go
Resentments are the blocks that hold us back from loving others and ourselves. Resentments do not punish the other person; they punish us. They become barriers to feeling good and enjoying life. They prevent us from being in harmony with the world. Resentments are hardened chunks of anger. They loosen up and dissolve with forgiveness and letting go.
Letting go of…
I am so grateful that god continually restore me to sanity. My insanity manifest itself in so many different ways (despite being sober for over 3 years). With each and every day more is revealed to me. This illness is so cunning, baffling, and powerful. I am grateful that I haven't given up on god and god hasn't given up on me. I am so grateful that this power greater than myself knows what its doing because I have no idea. If it were up to me nothing would ever change but I pray for gods…Continue

f there is one things that I've learned in 2011 it is how truly powerless I am. Step one is a beautiful step: We conceded to our innermost self that we are alcoholic, we admit that we have an illness, and that our lives are unmanageable because of us.... because of our perceptions, expectations, and defects of character. It is stated that this is not only true during our drinking and/or using days but also all throughout our journey of sobriety. How can this be? We have a disease…Continue
